moving color system from 3600 to 3640

Recently the monitor of our old lonely 3600 died and we won't spend
the deutsch-marks symbolics demands for a repair. But we still need
the color system (8bit) of the 3600.
So my idea was: why not put the color system (color-controler,
color-mem, color-paddle) in our 3640? There are tow free slots,
(marked CC and CM = color-controler and color-mem??) and the only
problems I can imagine are with different firmware revisions needed to
run the color-system in the 3640.
Has anyone done that before? Is it possible at all?? Both systems run
Genera 8.0.1 if it matters.
I can't think of any reason why this should be a problem. The 3600 and
3640 have the same bus architecture. What "firmware revisions" are you
talking about? As far as I know, there are no firmware revisions
necessary to run the color system.
